Membership at Manetto Hill Jewish Center

As members of Manetto Hill Jewish Center, we find strength, sustenance, and growth in our collective congregation.  At the same time, every individual here has different points of contact with our community. Parents of young children, teenagers, seniors, interfaith couples, LGBTQ Jews, new members, and third-generation families all have multiple avenues for participation. Members find meaning through worship, learning, and volunteering in the synagogue and beyond our walls. Whichever path you walk, as a member of Manetto Hill Jewish Center, you belong here.

More than a synagogue of individual members and families, Manetto Hill Jewish Center is a community of learners and doers. We meet regularly to engage in a variety of educational, social, religious and social action projects. We encourage all who join with us to take an active role in synagogue life and we offer a wide array of opportunities for doing so.

Our Membership Chairperson, Sarah Rabinovici welcomes the opportunity to speak with prospective members and to set up a tour of our synagogue. Reach her at
